Chaii (stylized in allcaps, as well as a logo that simulates persian script) is an Auckland-based rapper of Iranian origin whose music combines Persian beats and harmonies with western style hip-hop. She also switches to Persian occasionally as she raps. Her music is more or less dance music at its core, dominated by the synth sound and electronic percussion effects that construct electronic pop textures. That is when her use of middle eastern ryhthms and syncopation especially stands out. Her moniker means "tea", which is a drink that is ubiquitous in daily life all across Iran.
